We all agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, however sometimes life gets in the way. With this, being the issue for many of our members we went ahead and created three simple and fast healthy breakfast recipes that anyone can make. So put on your Chefs hat and prepare your taste buds for a healthy flavor explosion to kickstart your day.
Baked mini omelets
- 8 slices unsmoked bacon (use vegetarian bacon if preferred*)
- 1 tsp. ghee or organic butter
- 3 button mushrooms,
- finely chopped 8 cherry tomatoes,
- 6 free-range eggs
- salt and pepper to season
- 3/4 tsp. paprika
MAKES 8 OMELETS
Preheat oven to 200˚C/400˚F. Lightly grease 8 compartments of a muffin tin with oil or butter. Line each compartment, base, and sides, with a slice of bacon. Use scissors to cut the bacon slices to the right size. Melt the ghee or butter in a nonstick frying pan and sauté the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes over a gentle heat, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes and sauté for 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Divide the mushrooms amongst the 8 muffin tin compartments. Mix the eggs together in a bowl. Season with a small amount of salt (the bacon will add extra saltiness), pepper and paprika. Mix well. Divide the egg mixture amongst the 8 compartments. Add 2 tomato halves to each of the compartments. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
